Our Committees

The HSN is comprised of three standing committees:

The Executive Committee provides day-to-day governance for the Homeless Services Network, including decision-making regarding charges, responsibilities, and structure of committees, program development, fundraising, and speaking on behalf of the Network to the community.

The Advocacy Committee unifies the efforts of the Homeless Services Network through individual and class advocacy on behalf of persons who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless through contact with elected officials, government organizations, corporate leaders, the faith community, other non-profit organizations, and the citizens of Mecklenburg County.

The Coordination of Services and Housing (COSH) Committee examines the referral process for housing services within the network and coordinates the dissemination of important information to front line staff and administrators. This committee also oversees the current activities of the Shelter Rapid Re-Housing group, which includes receiving referrals for housing projects in the community that serve homeless individual and families. COSH may also identify resources for consumers that have an immediate need but do not fit in any of the existing shelter/housing programs.
